I need cans!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I am by no means an audiophile but I would like some noise canceling cans. I don't need anything special; I can hardly hear the difference between different earbuds. I just want to hear footsteps in CS 1.6

$20-$30.

Maybe what I'm asking for doesn't exist so cheaply. Excuse my audio ignorance.

Sennheiser HD201's are a solid bet - they are not active noise canceling, but are a closed design so they will offer you some noise isolation. They're quite good for the price.

If you want to be really cheap, you could go for those JVC's Gel earbuds, I used a pair to play source, and sounded quite amazing compared to just regular heaphones... I.M.O

...you shouldn't pass up this deal. They are awesome headphones, superb sound quality. They don't need an amp or anything. Plus, they're comfy too.
